Responsible Sourcing

We take great care in selecting suppliers who share our commitment to socially responsible and sustainable business practices.

Westpac was a pioneer in sustainable sourcing. As the first Australian bank to establish a sustainable supply chain management policy, we were an early adopter of world leading sustainable sourcing practices.


One of the cornerstones of our approach is a commitment to work closely with our suppliers to identify concerns and collaborate to drive more sustainable outcomes.

How we work with suppliers

We encourage existing and potential suppliers to:

  1. Understand our ethical, social and environmental standards using our Responsible Sourcing Code of Conduct below.
  2. Complete our Responsible Sourcing Supplier Assessment if requested.
  3. Collaborate and innovate with us to drive best practice and continuous improvement.
  4. Ensure their management systems effectively address any concerns and implement improvements.
  5. Understand and support our commitment to Supplier Inclusion and Diversity.
  6. Read our Westpac Group Supplier Playbook (PDF 987KB) to learn about what we look for when selecting a supplier.

Code of Conduct

We ask our suppliers and others seeking to do business with us to comply with Westpac's Responsible Sourcing Code of Conduct. It sets out Westpac's standards of ethical, social and environmental business practices required for suppliers.
